Chemical Conversion Coating

Chemical Conversion Coating: Chromate, Phosphate, And Black Oxide

“Conversion coating” is the process by which an insoluble compound coating is produced on the metal surface by reacting the outer atoms of the metal with the anion of the selected medium. This is a chemical coating-forming treatment method, and the covering coating produced by chemical treatment is usually called “conversion coating” or “chemical conversion …

Aluminum Anodized Parts Anodizing

Anodized Aluminum Parts Basics: Process, Benefits, Design Tips, And Applications   

Anodizing is one of the most common surface finishes, as it protects against corrosion, improves aesthetic qualities, and resists scratching. Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process to thicken the oxide layer on the metal’s surface. Because this oxide layer occurs naturally on aluminum alloys, anodizing is most commonly applied to aluminum and aluminum alloy surfaces. …
